Teeth do not feel aligned after wisdom teeth extraction. Is this normal?

In brief: Yes

It is not uncommon for patients to feel like their bite may be a little different after having wisdom teeth removed, as well as some sensitivity to hot and/or cold.
This is usually a transient sensation and resolves.

In brief: Teeth do move

After the pressure from the wisdom teeth are gone, the other teeth may move some.
Generally they settle into a new workable position within a couple of weeks. If not, then you need to have your dentist evaluate and/or adjust the biting.
